From Beirut to Dubai by MamaRowana


So here I am 1 month after writing my last piece about Lebanon not being my ‘happily ever after’ story. Since then, I left Beirut to the states to visit my family and to be a bridesmaid at my best friend’s wedding. Shortly after, my family and I took the big step to relocate to a new country, to a new city we could call home. This place is drum roll….Dubai (cue ‘eyes rolling’).

Yves Saint Laurent Makeup Step-By-Step Review

A month back, Yves Saint Laurent invited me to their beauty counter at ABC Ashrafieh for a makeover and to test out some of their makeup collection.

Run For Sarah el Khatib At The Beirut Marathon

The Beirut Marathon Association has opened two extra days for registration for an exceptionally awesome lady, Sarah el Khatib. Sarah was at TEDxLAU this year and delivered an inspiring talk on her fight with cancer, before she died two weeks later. I will be at the Beirut Marathon this year just like every year, and I will be running for Sarah.
For those who missed the deadline and still want to register, here’s a [link] to do so.

Last Beach Day

 Not much happening these days. After the rain of last weekend, we’re back in sunshine mode. A friend and I decided to enjoy one of the (probably) last beach days. It’s not that the weather isn’t good enough to be on the beach after today, but the beach resorts pack up their furniture, close the bar, and turn off the water. That means that from now on we’ve got to go to the beach Dutch style; on a towel in the sand, bring your own food and go home all salty, sticky and sandy. We’ve become too Lebanese to deal with that.

Lebanese Rodolphe el-Khoury Named New Dean of the University of Miami School of Architecture

El Khoury is born in Beirut and has taught at Harvard University, MIT, University of Hong Kong, Princeton University and Columbia University among others. [Source]

Lebanon Tops The List of Countries By Net Migration Rate

The net migration rate indicates the contribution of migration to the overall level of population change and does not differentiate between economic migrants, refugees and other types of migrants. Of course it’s not surprising to see Lebanon on top given the number of Syrian refugees entering the country everyday.
In terms of other Arab countries, Qatar came second, followed by Jordan in fifth spot, then Bahrain and UAE in 9th and 10th respectively.
